A little change of plans. We decided to not go farther east after all. So we spent the bulk of the day at the TeMemphis Zoo (a really great zoo, BTW) and then head south. We'll be in Jackson MS tonight, then go through Louisiana. I have some ancestors from there and we'll probably chase them a bit before heading into Texas.

After breakfast we returned to Graceland for one feature we missed yesterday. It was nothing really, based on his '68 comeback tour, mostly video we had seen before. Next we decided to find a car wash since we had parts of Arkansas and every bug in east Texas stuck to the front of it. It did not do the job. But when I walked around to the front of the car I see the license plate bent at a 90 degree angle and the license plate frame half gone. See attached photo...
Beale Street is very cool. Like 6th street but lots of blues. We're in BB Kings joint now for dinner and music.
We had great time at Graceland. It was much cooler than I expected. I probably took 40 pictures! We went late in the day so there were no crowds or hassle. Elvis was intense regarding friends and family. And he was extraordinarily generous.
